Hirschau, February 2022. The DigitalPakt School and the Corona pandemic have accelerated the digitization of German educational institutions. Many classrooms are now equipped with digital devices. But this alone is not enough: in the future, the topic of digitization in the educational environment will mainly concern the development of practical and holistic solutions and the creation of a modern digital and spatial infrastructure that supports teachers and students alike.

Learning through discovery: a central component of modern educational concepts

Gaining new knowledge through one’s own actions and learning motivated by one’s own experiences – children and young people can hardly experience their self-efficacy better. Frontal teaching offers little room for students to participate in learning success through independent research. What is needed is the integration of innovative learning elements into a digital infrastructure and a modern room concept.

White paper for teachers and decision makers

As a technology expert and solutions provider in the education industry, Conrad Electronic has had this topic in mind for a long time, especially in the interdisciplinary MINT environment. The technology specialist’s training team, together with experts from a wide range of areas of the educational environment, has now examined in more detail the most important issues related to ‘learning by discovery’. The result is a comprehensive white paper in which they share their knowledge and pass on their practical experience.

Expert knowledge – in and out of daily school life

Jarl Schultz, principal of the German Scandinavian Community School (DSG), shares his experiences from school practice. The facility is a pioneer in implementing modern digital education concepts with a holistic and creative learning approach. FreiDenker Campus founder Nicole M. Pfeffer provides momentum for integrating extracurricular learning spaces for creative discovery. Dr Dierk Suhr from the classroom specialist Hohenloher passes on his knowledge about optimal room planning from a pedagogical and didactic point of view. And Michael Motzek, branch manager of the Conrad B2B branch in Hürth, describes possible approaches to the flexible design of learning spaces for discovery for different needs and age groups.
